had allowed us to rebuild europe after world war ii. something had been lost in the recent years. i wondered when did that happen and why did that happen. then i came back from iraq in time to cover the 2008 presidential election. suddenly the institutions were collapsing around me everywhere that you looked. wall street, lending institutions across the country, general motors. chrysler. it was an apocalyptic sense that the pillars that it had upheld during the postwar order had created the most successful middle-class democracy in history seemed to be coming undone. and that struck me as being a very big story, one well worth telling and the question was how do you tell a story like that? there are a lot of books out there, very good ones about the decline of the middle class and income inequality and about the collapse of our old media institutions and political polarization in washington and about the rise of big money and corporate power on capitol hill. i did not have anything to add to those books and i didn't want to write another what is wrong with america and how to fix it
